Featured Superyacht: M/Y 11.11 by Benetti

November 04, 2016

Written by Eva Belanyiova

The Italian shipyard Benetti has been renowned for its international success in creating bespoke luxury yachts of fine Italian design, quality materials and great attention to detail. The 63-metre M/Y 11.11 is no exception!

Delivered in early 2016, 11.11 boasts superior technical, aesthetic and functional strengths. She is characterised by striking elegant exterior lines and an eye-catching vertical axe bow. The yacht represents the second ever plumb-bow vessel designed by Benetti’s naval architects and was created to avoid the upward push of the waves, allowing the boat to cut through the water for exceptionally stable cruising.

11.11 spreads over four spacious decks offering plenty of spaces for entertainment and relaxation as well as accommodation for up to 12 guests. A crew of 16 takes care of the day-to-day duties on board as well as offers the highest standard of service to the owners and guests.

Two CAT 3512C engines power the yacht to up to 17.5 knots of top speed while her cruising range is 5,000 nautical miles. The two nickel-aluminium-bronze DETRA propellers allow for high-efficiency and low-pressure transmission to the hull.

When it comes to her exterior characteristics, she is elegant yet with a muscular undertone. One of the interesting features is the absence of bulwarks and the application of full height windows on the main deck, as well as huge 180-degree windows that enclose the upper and sun decks.

The forward area of the main deck is entirely unobstructed leaving the ship handling and docking areas concealed and the view from the bridge and the master suite free.

By night, 11.11 is transformed into a real spectacle thanks to the 46 underwater light along the waterline.

Interior offers generous living spaces with the main saloon offering an imposing entertaining area with custom-made u-shaped sofa and a formal dining table seating twelve.

The sky lounge on the upper deck provides a more informal lounge environment providing guests with a cocktail bar and plenty of seating to relax.

In addition to the main saloon, there are numerous dining possibilities with the upper deck backlit quartzite dining table offering the most distinctive experience. The area is further ‘embellished’ by over a tonne of natural Italian fluted stone and two symmetrical seating areas with custom-fitted sofas.

The accommodation includes two beautifully appointed owner suites, including one very spacious main deck VIP suite with full-beam cabin and six full-height portrait windows, as well as a study/vanity area and a walk-in wardrobe.

The master suite offers exceptional 180-degree views overlooking the completely private owners’ sun deck, featuring the popular Jacuzzi pool and sunbathing area.

The sun deck aft is perhaps the most important area for leisure and relaxation offering 15 metres of deck space. A fluted bar is created of a sandblasted Italian stone offers curved seating, while guests will also enjoy the spa-inspired pool with adjacent kitchenette.

A dedicated Spa Area offers a steam room made entire of mosaic tiles with smoky quartz stones and soothing chroma therapy. The white marble treatment room next to it has a massage bed and a heated towel cabinet.

Further accommodation is offered on the lower deck and it includes four vast guest cabins , including two doubles and two twins. All accommodation offers en-suite bathroom facilities with Italian marble and bespoke Lalique crystal taps complimenting the large basin areas. In addition, there is a powder room on each deck.

The crew quarters are also very generous and offer equally-sized crew cabins. The yacht was specifically designed to owner’s requests including plenty of child safety features such as rounded edges and fabric-wrapped walls and furniture. There is a child’s cabin adjacent to the Master suite.

From the technological point of view, 11.11 is also well-advanced offering individual iPads in every room which control the customising of audio/visual content, lighting, curtains and blinds as well as air conditioning. There are built-in Samsung Curved UHD TVs throughout the yacht installed in bespoke cabinets and frames to fully integrate with the overall design of this striking superyacht.
